Nuclear decommissioning cooperation agreement signed

Vattenfall Europe Nuclear Energy (VENE) and E.ON Technologies (ETG) are cooperating on the decommissioning and dismantling of joint nuclear power plants.
 
The operating licenses of four jointly operated nuclear power plants in Germany were withdrawn in 2011 as the country moves to shut down all generating nuclear power plants by 2022. The cooperation agreement will incorporate experience especially from the largely completed dismantling of E.ON nuclear power plant in Stade and the planning and implementation of the decommissioning of the VENE nuclear plants.
 
As part of the agreement, the companies will develop and use concepts such as the deconstruction for the dismantling of large components and logistics, waste treatment or disposal.
